About the Polk Audio DB 5252
Polk Audio's DB+ Series component speakers are a dynamite value as well as being stellar performers. Their journey to excellence begins with a laser-imaged design that ensures minimal distortion, smooth response, and incredible sonic detail.
Honed Polk perfection
This DB5252 component speaker system features a 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer cone with a strong rubber surround for solid playback and resilience under the environmental stress that comes with living in your car doors. The separate 3/4" silk dome tweeter delivers smooth highs with precision to give you a vibrant soundstage, and the included external crossover network keeps the highs and lows flowing to the proper drivers for seamless performance.
Handles up to 100 watts RMS
With power handling up to 100 watts RMS, you'll do fine driving this system with an aftermarket receiver, but these speakers will love life if you power them with a nice amp.

Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.
Tweeter Mounting: The supplied mounting cups allow you to surface or flush mount the tweeters. The tweeters swivel slightly in the flush mount housings, allowing you to adjust them for optimum imaging.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
|Flush Mount||Surface Mount|
|Mounting Depth||0.731"||screw depth|
Crossover: The outboard crossovers have screw terminal inputs and outputs (0.3" wide). A jumper inside each crossover allows you to adjust the tweeter output level; choose 0 dB, +3 dB, or +6 dB. There are two screw holes in the base of each crossover for mounting.
- Width: 2.6"
- Height: 1.2"
- Depth: 4.73"
Marine Certification: Polk speakers are marine certified, making them a good choice for boats in fresh water, convertibles, motorcycles, ATVs, and other applications where the speaker might get wet. Because they have coated steel baskets, the terminals are not covered, and the crossovers are not sealed, we do not recommend using them in salt water environments.
